Brook Lopez Was Set To Sign With Rockets Last Offseason
Before he decided to re-sign with the Milwaukee Bucks, the Houston Rockets were so close to signing Brook Lopez.
Sources told Bobby Marks of ESPN, last offseason was between Milwaukee and Houston; where Lopez was set to sign with the Rockets.
Last offseason was a pivotal one for the Rockets; a lot of veteran free agents from Fred VanVleet to Dillon Brooks to Jock Landale was signed.
Would Landale been a no-go if Lopez was signed? Maybe, maybe not. However, Houston is still doing good without him. If looking beyond the hypotheticals.
Their current center Alperen Sengun is averaging 21.5 points and 9.0 rebounds on the season.
With all that being said, it is insane to believe Lopez could have left the Bucks for the Rockets. Last offseason was a fun time for both sides.
